Vinclozolin is a non-systemic dicarboximide fungicide that is used both pre and post-harvest on fruits, vegetables and ornamental plants for the control of several species of fungi.
There are no products containing vinclozolin currently registered for use in Australia.
In January 1996 the APVMA (formerly the NRA) began a review of vinclozolin because of concerns over its potential to cause adverse reproductive and developmental effects.
In January 1997 the APVMA released the Vinclozolin Review Final Report. In the report the APVMA recommended canceling the registration of all products containing vinclozolin and associated product label approvals, and withdrawing all Maximum Residue Limits (MRLs) for vinclozolin.
